Texas Appellate Court Denies Petition for Writ of Mandamus Seeking to Vacate Order Requiring Defendant to Produce "All E-Data Derived from Backup Tapes and Maintained on Computer Hard Drives"
In re BP Prods., N. Am., Inc., 2006 WL 648816 (Tex. Ct. App. Mar. 13, 2006)
In this opinion, a Texas appellate court denied the petition for a writ of mandamus filed by BP Products North America, Inc., which complained that the trial judge abused her discretion by compelling BP to produce, by March 17, 2006, "all e-data derived from backup tapes and maintained on computer hard drives under BP's control" that were responsive to the plaintiffs' steering committee's request, as identified in the court's February 6, 2006 order and in the manner specified in the order. The appellate court had previously denied BP's request for emergency relief requesting a stay of the February 6, 2006 order.
